Dark Family by Sara Gran and Megan Abbott

Dark Family by Sara Gran and Megan Abbott | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it

A reconsideration of V. C. Andrews’s much-maligned, utterly strange quasi children’s literature.


...Ultimately, Andrews’s novels constitute their own genre, in which secrets, lies, desire, and moral corruption all stem from—and are contained in—the family.

Virginia Woolf & Marguerite Duras consider photographs & recorded voices of the dead

Virginia Woolf & Marguerite Duras consider photographs & recorded voices of the dead | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it
VIRGINIA WOOLF Three Guineas, 1938 Photographs, of course, are not arguments addressed to the reason; they are simply statements of fact addressed to the eye. But in that very simplicity there may be some help.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Especially poignant given the release of the Sandy Hook tapes. (The media should not have played those tapes.)

Who was Kathy Keeton? For starters, Keeton was Guccione’s longtime girlfriend and eventual wife. But she ought to be remembered for far more than that.

This woman ought to be among the largest names in feminism and publishing -- and an icon of the 1970s - 1980s.

Collecting Print Blocks

Collecting Print Blocks | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it

The use of printing blocks in newspapers and other printed advertising resulted in vast quantities of these blocks being produced. Examples of the same logo were often replicated in several sizes depending on the usage. Larger sizes for newspaper or magazine ads, with full, half or quarter page ads requiring different size print blocks. Even smaller versions were needed for letterheads, business cards or company envelopes.  These are now a relic of the very recent past, and quite collectible.

Recognize any of the old logos -- even backwards? ;)
